    Meg is a twenty-something “old soul” and is known to leave {red} lipstick marks on her coffee mugs. She moved to Hoboken last year for a boy {a wonderful one at that} and has happily resided uptown since. When she’s not writing our weekly events guide, she’s a real estate agent and an amateur photographer. You can usually find Meg at a local coffee shop, a hot yoga studio, or home with her two cats, Penny Lane & Lucy. She loves a good glass of wine and cooking to her favorite band, The Beatles. Show this girl a sense of humor or recommend some good fiction and she’ll love you, dearly.
